    You've got it all wrong, the night before you give her the birthday present you got for her, a weekend getaway to a spa for just her. You get to hang, and she gets to be pampered while thinking your the best husband of all time.

    But otherwise beautiful place to camp, went there when I was barely a teenager living in FL.

    I'll be trying to hike either the Ocala North or Ocala South section of the FL Trail towards the end of next month. I should have precise dates sometime this week or next week, and wouldn't mind company on some (or all) of those days.

    Sounds good on paper.

    Well, it turns out that I won't be able to go this weekend. Unfortunately, the wife and I need to sit down on Monday and go over our finances for some of the upcoming expenses that we have.

    Sorry, folks; I hope to be able to make it to the next one.

    The biggest problem I see with the whole plan is, pack weight goes through the roof, when we are talking N. FL!!!!! Do you have any idea what a set of double 108's, drysuit, regulators, stage bottles and deco bottles weigh????

I don't mind the heat so much if I can plunge off into the water every so often.


    Of course I'm planning to start re-sodding my yard this weekend.....yeah. I'd rather be campin'
    I've been putting that off for months. I fear I'll have to break down and order sod soon.

    I like your thinking. Unfortunately my neighbors give me the stink eye like they don't appreciate fine dirt. I figure I'm just doing my part to conserve water and other natural resources.
